Our priority is to reduce the risk of our staff, patients and service users from getting COVID-19, whilst still caring for you. We are still here to help you.
Keeping you safe from COVID-19
We have put in place a range of measures at North Devon District Hospital and our community sites to keep everyone safe from coronavirus.
We are wearing PPE to protect staff and patients
We are practising good hand hygiene
Please don’t come wearing gloves as this can increase the spread of germs
Hand sanitiser and handwashing facilities are widely available
We are carrying out lots of testing because we know that not all COVID-19 symptoms are obvious
We are continuing to offer video and phone appointments where there isn’t a need for physical examination
Help keep our spaces clear by attending by yourself where possible
We have separate areas to keep patients who might or do have COVID-19 apart from others
We have made changes to our waiting areas to help you keep your distance from others
Look out for all the signage, and make space for others
We are doing temperature checks and asking screening questions
If you need urgent help
You can access GP services, call 111 or call 999 in a medical emergency.
Our emergency department (A&E) is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week at North Devon District Hospital.
Some minor injuries services are available for treating conditions that aren’t serious but do need attention.
